Tango Negro (Dir Dom Pedro, 2013, Angola/France, Cert E, 93mins) Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro explores the expression of tango’s African-ness and the contribution of African cultures to the creation of the tango. Tango was a reflection of the social life of the slaves who were taken to South America — including Argentina and Uruguay — mostly from central Africa.

Director Dom Pedro reveals the depth of the footprints of African music on the tango through this rich movie combining musical performances and interviews from many tango fans and historians in Latin America and Europe, including the renowned Argentinean pianist Juan Carlos Caceres.

With English subtitles

Screening at The Cambria on Saturday 22 March 2014, 8pm.
